Plan Of Salvation
“What is the plan of salvation / way of salvation?”Are you hungry? Not physically hungry, but do you have a hunger for something more in life? Is there something deep inside of you that never seems to be satisfied? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus said,
“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty
Are you confused? Can you never seem to find a path or purpose in life? Does it seem like someone has turned out the lights and you cannot find the switch? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus proclaimed,
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
Do you ever feel like you are locked out of life? Have you tried so many doors, only to find that what is behind them is empty and meaningless? Are you looking for an entrance into a fulfilling life? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus declared,
Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.( Or will find safety) They will come and go freely and will find good pastures.
Do other people always let you down? Have your relationships been shallow and empty? Does it seem like everyone is trying to take advantage of you? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus said,
“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep…….“I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me,Do you wonder what happens after this life? Are you tired of living your life for things that only rot or rust? Do you sometimes doubt whether life has any meaning? Do you want to live after you die? If so, Jesus is the way! Jesus declared,
Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[a] Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?”
What is the way? What is the truth? What is the life? Jesus answered,
Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.
The hunger that you feel is a spiritual hunger, and can only be filled by Jesus. Jesus is the only one who can lift the darkness.
Jesus is the door to a satisfying life. Jesus is the friend and shepherd that you have been looking for. Jesus is the life—in this world and the next. Jesus is the way of salvation!The reason you feel hungry, the reason you seem to be lost in darkness, the reason you cannot find meaning in life, is that you are separated from God. The Bible tells us that we have all sinned, and are therefore separated from God
Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.
The void you feel in your heart is God missing from your life. We were created to have a relationship with God. Because of our sin, we are separated from that relationship. Even worse, our sin will cause us to be separated from God for all of eternity, in this life and the next (Romans 6:23John 3:36).Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.
And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
How can this problem be solved? Jesus is the way! Jesus took our sin upon Himself
2 Corinthians 5:21
For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin,[a] so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
Jesus died in our place, taking the punishment that we deserve.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, proving His victory over sin and death
Romans 6:4-5And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was
Why did He do it? Jesus answered that question Himself:
There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends
Jesus died so that we could live. If we place our faith in Jesus, trusting His death as the payment for our sins, all of our sins are forgiven and washed away. We will then have our spiritual hunger satisfied.
The lights will be turned on.
We will have access to a fulfilling life.
We will know our true best friend and good shepherd.
We will know that we will have life after we die—a resurrected life in heaven for eternity with Jesus!John 3:16
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
